The AD5379 contains 40 14-bit DACs in one CSPBGA package. The AD5379 provides a bipolar output range determined by the voltages applied to the VREF(+) and VREF(−) inputs. The maximum output voltage span is 17.5 V, corresponding to a bipolar output range of −8.75 V to +8.75 V, and is achieved with reference voltages of VREF(−) = −3.5 V and VREF(+) = +5 V.
The AD5379 offers guaranteed operation over a wide VSS/VDD supply range from ±11.4 V to ±16.5 V. The output amplifier headroom requirement is 2.5 V operating with a load current of 1.5 mA, and 2 V operating with a load current of 0.5 mA.
The AD5379 contains a double-buffered parallel interface in which 14 data bits are loaded into one of the input registers under the control of the WR, CS, and DAC Channel Address Pins A0 to A7. It also has a 3-wire serial interface that is com-patible with SPI®, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, and DSP® interface standards and can handle clock speeds of up to 50 MHz.
The DAC outputs are updated upon reception of new data into the DAC registers. All the outputs can be simultaneously updated by taking the LDAC input low. Each channel has a programmable gain and an offset adjust register.
Each DAC output is gained and buffered on-chip with respect to an external REFGND input. The DAC outputs can also be switched to REFGND via the CLR pin.

analogZone Review of the AD5379, 40-Channel, 14-Bit Bipolar DAC For ATE And Optical Networking
... One of the incredible things about this 40-channel part is that the channel-to-channel isolation is quoted at a typical 100 dB! How the designers achieved that I cannot imagine but it is a critical specification when you are handling so many signals simultaneously.
